Hi, I would like to work my Beaglebone Black in debian platform.I download a raw microSD image https://rcn-ee.net/deb/microsd/wheezy/bone-debian-7.3-2014-01-24-2gb.img.xz from http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardDebian#Debian_7_.28wheezy.29. The board is booted up.But when I connect the board to a HDMI monitor no GUI comes. Does this image has GUI support? Please help? Thanks and Regards, Maria

If you need someone to force ONE gui on you, i have my "testing" images here: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/beagleboard/w9PfhGkByQU/bE_BNG4vgHgJ or just: cd /opt/scripts/ git pull ./tools/wm/lxde.sh ./tools/graphics/ti-tilcdc.sh reboot Regards,

There's also apt-get install lxde (or the gui desktop window manager of your choice) Eric On Mon, Feb 3, 2014 at 1:33 AM, MARIA VARGHESE
